I've taught many workshops,
lectures and classes on consciousness,
lucid dreaming, personal power and self-healing in many venues in California
and online (in the AOL and Utne Spirituality forums). I am nearing completion
on a manuscript on these subjects
(several chapters are available for previewing), and hope to publish
the book during the coming year.
I've also composed more than 1,000 hymns that
I've channeled specifically for the Santo Daime rituals; now I'm going
back and scoring the earlier ones so people won't have to rely on my
voice or memory. So far, I have about 600 of them
on this site. I believe that whoever sings them with full intention
will become illuminated. They are full of treasures for all who have
faith, devotion and love, and they even surprise me!
INTERESTS: Discoveries in science and consciousness.
Nature, beautiful music and true friendship. The awakening of Divine
Consciousness in man. Exploring new inner and outer worlds.
EDUCATION: PhD in Research Psychology, Master's degree (USC) in Computer Science,
with certifications in Software Engineering and Project Management.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner certification.
I studied Jewish scripture until after bar mitzvah, but my mystical
experiences began when I was seven years old, with the death of my grandfather.
Since no one would talk to me about death when I asked, I started using
the period just before falling asleep to approach where it was that
Death must be lying in wait for me.
Later I discovered that I had inadvertantly
used the same types of methods found in many of the mystical classics.
My special favorites were Gurdjieff,
and books about Zen
Buddhism and the Tao Te Ching.
Along the way, I spent about six years studying
SRF meditation, about
12 years in the Gurdjieff Foundation, about three years studying lucid
dreamwork, another three years with the Deer
Tribe, a year of NLP
certification work, more than 10 years working with shamanic methods,
and over 15 years channeling
the Christ-level masters.
In 1995 I initiated into an Amazonian
mystery religion, Santo Daime, and this has been the center of
my spiritual life. It feels like how the great religions must have all
started, with healings, visions, miracles and direct revelation available
to whoever enters.
